A few words from Carlos - 


"It all started in March 2019, with a daily driver. Then a friend added me to a chat. Everything began to go from a daily car to a completely new level. I have 2 years with this exciting car and I have learned so much about the mechanical and features of the car. It is like a dream never ending. From the exterior to the interior, I have installed all accessories. As for the mechanical components, I have been doing part myself and others a friend that works at Honda. Having made many changes to the engine, suspension, exteriors, anywhere I go they ask me about the car. It draws everyone's attention.

I have had the opportunity to meet new friends and be parts of some 10th gen Civic groups. I have the opportunity to help people with accessories installs and parts installs and I really liked it. In January 2020 I broke my engine. Without thinking quickly, I bought the TSP Short block, thanks to Corey and the team always had excellent communication and status of it. I received it exactly in 6 weeks as indicated, super packaged, and delicately treated.

There began another story of what today is my Civic SI 18 as the Honda slogan says, 'The Power of Dreams'. Having to run a new engine take the advantage. During the COVID-19 quarantine I was working very hard on it. I can say it has been a tough adventure and I know that we are still going to be able to get more out of the engine and push the limit of my setup. This is my hobby and my passion!

Stay tuned for more…."
